The Man Who Came Down the Attic Stairs is a reprint/glow up/add on to Celine Loup‘s earlier published comic of the same name (but this time it is published by Archaia). Emma has recently gotten excited about her new family, but plagued by the wailings of her distraught newborn she starts to unravel and fear those she thought she could trust. This book is a horror story themed around postpartum depression, resulting in a strong, layered story with new material for fans of the original printing.
